DOVER – DNREC’s Recycling Program within the Division of Waste & Hazardous Substances is offering compost bins that can be pre-ordered online at a discount price – for pick-up only at a Delaware Solid Waste Authority recycling event Saturday, June 2, at Fort DuPont State Park Parade Grounds, 248 Kent Avenue, Delaware City, DE 19706. Pre-order deadline for the FreeGarden Earth compost bins is May 26. Orders must be placed online at www.enviroworld.us/Delaware, with major credit cards and PayPal accepted.

The compost bins cost $50, which is half the retail price. Bins must be picked up between 8 a.m. and 2 p.m. at the DSWA Delaware City event – during which time DNREC’s Recycling Program will also be onsite helping to feature easy-to-use products that can make organic waste diversion easy in Delaware.

Compost bins can provide homeowners a big organic assist in caring for their lawns and gardens. Beneficial to the environment, compost bins help turn food scraps and yard waste into a nutrient-rich soil amendment that replaces traditional fertilizers to produce gardens with healthier plants and vegetables.
